AbstractThe National Guide to Sustainable Municipal Infrastructure: Innovations and Best Practices (InfraGuide) is a most exciting municipal infrastructure project being developed by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and the National Research Council (NRC) under the largesse of the Government of Canada. The project's goal is to develop and disseminate best practices for Decision Making and Investment Planning, Roads and Sidewalks, Storm and Wastewater, Potable Water and Environmental Protocols. InfraGuide is also the focal point for a pan-Canadian network of practitioners, researchers and municipal governments focused on infrastructure operations and maintenance. InfraGuide represents the needs of municipalities across Canada. The concept has been developed through extensive consultations with a vast network of public and private stakeholders who continue to be involved in InfraGuide's development. The project is a direct result of requests made by Canadian municipalities for a renewed federal role in the development of inspiring methods for the optimization of municipal infrastructure management. A broadly based board of public and private representatives sets up the organization and the various development committees.
